Summary When using emotion terms such as anger, sadness, fear, disgust and contempt, it is assumed that the terms used in the negative language of the researchers, and translated into English, are completely equivalent in meaning. This is often not the case. This book presents an extensive cross-cultural/linguistic review of the meaning of emotion words.
